Acupuncture and allergies

Do you have seasonal allergies? I, fortunately, do not, however those that do can suffer greatly during certain times of the year. Acupuncture may be able to help. In fact I chuckle to myself when I see an article in the paper or a magazine talking of the power of acupuncture to help a variety of issues. I use it almost daily in an effort to help patients deal with health issues. It works fabulously for most patients. I saw an article in the local paper that said it may help with allergies sighting a German study showing its effectiveness compared to sham acupuncture or medications. The nice thing about acupuncture is that it is non-invasive relative to other procedures and has a longer lasting effect without the need for medications. Though insurance generally doesn’t cover medications for allergies, the benefits will most likely outweigh the meager costs! Give it a try!
